The truth is, no matter how much money you make, you’ll always “need a little bit more.”
Let’s do a quick exercise.
What percent of your income did you give to a kids’ club, homeless shelter, hospital, church, (it doesn’t matter,) SOMETHING besides yourself?
Second question. DID you give ANY part of your income to something or someone besides yourself?
Last question. If you didn’t give any of your income to a cause outside of yourself, did you still feel like you didn’t have enough? Don’t be embarrassed if your answer is YES…. because you are in the majority.
Isn’t it crazy that you can make money all year long, keep it all to yourself, and still not have enough? I could cut you a $100,000 check today, and you’d assume it would solve all of your problems. Let me tell you something: you couldn’t be more wrong.
Oddly enough, more money doesn’t mean fewer problems. A bigger bank account often means BIGGER problems. You’ll just keep finding ways to use up every single penny, and you will never build a solid margin of money… UNTIL you force yourself to be generous.
Would you like to know the PROOF that you need to start giving now, even though you think you can’t afford to…?
What you did last year DIDN’T WORK!
So try this challenge.
Pick a percentage— it can be whatever you want it to be. My number is 10%. Now give X percent of your PERSONAL income, and X percent of your Practice’s profit every single month. Make it a habit. Track it, and watch the results.
In a year you’ll see that BECAUSE you built it into your system, you naturally learned how to create financial margin. You’ll be amazed at how you’re suddenly “able to afford” generosity. And then, keeping a large financial margin will just be a matter of self-discipline.
It all comes back to self-discipline.
Everyone has this misconception— they think that you have to be RICH to GIVE, but it is actually the complete opposite. You need to have the self-discipline to give to others regularly, (give to anything you are passionate about!) and to not spend every single dollar you make on yourself.
If you practice generosity, you position yourself on the path to wealth.
This isn’t some crazy, new-aged principle— it is just a simple and predictable process. Money flows to where it is going to be used for GOOD, so if you’d like to see more money flow your way, start doing the right things with it.
This is something I feel very passionate about. I’ll be speaking more on this principle and other strategies for wealth at the upcoming Financial Freedom Weekend in January. Seats are filling up quickly, so call 866-917-2808 right now to reserve a spot!
